I met Phil at a book signing back in May 2005, when he was touring the country promoting his autobiography. I spoke to him about this site, and thanked him for allowing all the access. He told me that he used the site all the time when he was writing his book, to help jog his memory about certain specific sets and shows. It was a very cool moment and I was really glad to hear how much he appreciated this website.

Never met Jerry. When I was 17 years old, after a Philly show, my friend (whose aunt is Manasha Matheson) and I waited almost all night outside Manasha Matheson's apartment building because he thought she was bringing Jerry back to her place. I remember I had a cassette tape of Terrapin Station I was hoping he would sign. But they never showed up, I guess she met him at the Four Seasons and stayed over there.
